Lewis Hamilton took part Sunday in demonstrations against racism in London. The six-time world champion of Formula 1 has described this experience as “really emotional”.
Lewis Hamilton is the only driver black F1. He joined the protesters in London who work regularly since the death of George Floyd in the United States last month.
“Went to Hyde Park today (Sunday) for the peaceful demonstration and I was so proud to see it by myself and so many people of all races and backgrounds to support this movement“commented Hamilton. “I was proud to be there to recognize and support the movement Black Lives Matter (the lives of black matter), and my black heritage“.
The British 35-year-old had earlier announced in an interview with the Sunday Times, its intention to launch a commission on diversity, designed to attract more Blacks to the occupations of motor sport, in particular by studying the science, technology and mathematics.
